The PostgreSQL Global Development Group has released an update to all
supported versions of our database system, including 11.2, 10.7, 9.6.12,
9.5.16, and 9.4.21. This release changes the behavior in how PostgreSQL
interfaces with `fsync()` and includes fixes for partitioning and over
70 other bugs that were reported over the past three months.
Users should plan to apply this update at the next scheduled downtime.
FreeBSD port adds OPTIONS knob to support LLVM JIT. 
Highlight: Change in behavior with fsync()

Bump PORTREVISION for ports depending on the canonical version of GCC
defined via Mk/bsd.default-versions.mk which has moved from GCC 7.4 t
GCC 8.2 under most circumstances.
This includes ports
- with USE_GCC=yes or USE_GCC=any,
- with USES=fortran,
- using Mk/bsd.octave.mk which in turn features USES=fortran, and
- with USES=compiler specifying openmp, nestedfct, c11, c++0x, c++11-lang,
c++11-lib, c++14-lang, c++17-lang, or gcc-c++11-lib
plus, as a double check, everything INDEX-11 showed depending on lang/gcc7.
